Since the launch of their first issue in March 2012, Us Folk have continued to promote emerging young artists, photographers, designers and writers from Canberra and the surrounding region. BMA can, without a hint of shame, declare untold admiration for Us Folk’s consistently magnificent style and content. Within only one year of their first issue they are soon to release their fourth, coinciding somewhat perfectly with their one-year anniversary. Their fourth issue upholds their ethos of supporting home-grown talent, featuring illustrations, articles and photography from a range of volunteers who have given their time and energy – all for the love of contributing to a local Canberran publication. They will be launching their fourth issue at La De Da on Friday March 15 from 7pm, so get along to grab a copy and wish them happy birthday. For more info, visit us-folk.com.
